Guides to Choosing Persistent Identifiers - Version 3

Madden, Frances; van Horik, René; van de Sandt, Stephanie; Lavasa, Artemis; Cousijn, Helena

The FREYA Project has compiled short guides to help with choosing persistent identifiers for various types of entities. These are the final version. The first versions were released in May 2020 for community feedback and comment throughout June 2020.  Revised versions were developed in July 2020 and are published here. 

While not intended to be fully comprehensive, these guides are designed to provide a starting point for anyone thinking about using persistent identifiers in their systems. Guides were created for the following entities:

  • Publications
  • Datasets
  • People
  • Organizations
  • Software

A table summarising all of the guides is also available.
